Welcome to Ogden

We are rugged and rustic, yet cool and urban.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, countless visitors discovered the Ogden area’s abundant outdoor recreation assets for the first time. Just 35 minutes from SLC International Airport and with the bulk of the area comprised of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, visitors in search of open space and fresh air explored our hundreds of miles of hiking and mountain bike trails, rivers teeming with trout, and reservoirs for dipping a paddle or chasing largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie, perch, bluegill, tiger muskie and walleye. 

As we emerge from the pandemic and businesses and attractions fully re-open and our iconic events resume, visitors in 2021 will be able to more fully explore our eclectic mountain-to-metro community.

From the fun to the downright funky, Ogden, Utah is anything but your typical mountain town. Our three world-class ski resorts, located just 20 minutes from downtown Ogden, enjoy 450 inches of powdery snow each winter and offer abundant summer recreation and programming. 

But Ogden isn’t just for adrenaline junkies with an outdoor jones. History buffs can explore museums celebrating everything from our significant railroad history to Ogden-native, John M. Browning’s earliest firearm designs. Families can expand young minds with interactive experiences with dinosaurs, military aircraft, nature, history and more.  

Our vibrant arts and culture scene is evident in a myriad of galleries, installations, murals, festivals, and performance venues.

Dozens of independently owned and operated restaurants, breweries, and distilleries are sure to satisfy any palette.

If sports and athletic competition is your thing, enjoy a bit of small-town baseball in one of the most scenic ballparks in the U.S., or watch international athletes compete in championship Xterra off-road triathlons or Spartan races.


Whatever you do with your daylight hours, be sure to end up on Historic 25th Street for a bit of shopping, dining, and nightlife to recharge before your next day’s adventure.
